Wilhelm Scream Again

A while back I had a Friday Thought about the Wilhelm Scream from movies. I just found out it was the voice work of Sheb Wooley, a man more famous for his novelty song ‘Purple People Eater’. Shelby Wooley passed away in 2003. He played Ben Miller, brother of Frank Miller in the film High Noon, played Travis Cobb in The Outlaw Josey Wales, and also had a co-starring role as scout Pete Nolan in the television program Rawhide.

What's in a Name, Wilhelm Scream

The Wilhelm scream is a frequently-used film and television stock sound effect first used in 1951 for the film Distant Drums.

The effect gained new popularity (its use often becoming an in-joke) after it was used in Star Wars and many other blockbuster films as well as television programs and video games. The scream is often used when someone is falling to his death from great height.

Two minutes of fun. You will recognize it the first time you hear it. LINK
